Popcorn came to HSSM after being found January 2nd, 2018 on the side of the road abandoned. If you look at the 3rd photo you can see the condition she was in the day she arrived. After a few days of IV fluids, Popcorn stayed in a manager's office so she could eat small meals and get her strength back.The first night in Casey's office Popcorn pooped out nothing but whole kernel dried corn, like what is used in deer feeders by hunters. This told us at HSSM that she had been on her own for awhile and was doing all she could to survive. After 1.5 months at HSSM, Popcorn went from 32lbs to 45lbs and learned how to trust people. For months HSSM staff and volunteers worked diligently with her to get her accustomed to new people, dogs, sights and sounds. Finally, seven months later, Popcorn found a home of her own!

Sadly, Popcorn's saga continues... Fast forward another eight months and Popcorn is back. For whatever reason, her owner no longer wants her. Popcorn does not like living behind bars and is very anxious to get out of the shelter. Not every dog likes Popcorn's high energy personality, so if you have another dog, you'll need to bring him or her to the shelter for a meet and greet to make sure they are a great match with Popcorn. She is more suitable for a home with children over 10 as she doesn't realize how big and strong she is and can easily topple the young ones.

Popcorn deserves her true happily ever after ending! What started as a very rough beginning turned into an incredible transformation. But now Popcorn needs your help again!
